This is my favourite face scrub recipe. It has only three ingredients, needs no advance prep and works beautifully at exfoliating the skin and unclogging pores.
The honey is a humectant, meaning that it will hydrate your skin and it’s also antibacterial, the sugar is abrasive to remove dry dead skin, and the oil dissolves dirt and oil on your skin. The oilier your skin, the more oil you should use since oil dissolves oil; my skin tends to be quite dehydrated and this recipe is perfect for me.
- 1/4 tsp caster sugar
- 1/2 tsp honey
- A few drops of extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil or hemp seed oil
Mix ingredients into the palm of your hand. Wet your face and gently massage the mixture all over your face and lips in small circles. Concentrate on any dry or spotty areas. Wet a face cloth with hot water and place over your face for 20 seconds or so and then wipe your face clean. Moisturise as usual.
